  Human evolution and the Ecomorphology of Tree Climbing
  Dr S K Thorpe, Dr W Sellers

  Dr C Venditti, Dr JS Singarayer, Prof M Pagel, Prof S Harrison

Modern humans arose in Africa around 200,000 years ago and subsequently migrated out of Africa eventually to occupy the entire world – the only Hominin species in an evolutionary lineage that is ~7 million years old to have done so.
  Functional morphology and variability of the auditory system - frameworks in the search for human speech evolution
  Dr A Stoessel
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The capacity for vocal communication using speech is a unique characteristic of modern humans and its origin during human evolution remains obscure.
  Clinical Genetics: De Novo Mutations, Selfish Selection, Mosaicism and Human Disease - developing methods for identification of new genes/molecular pathways subject to selfish selection within the human testis
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most of them originate, the human testis.
